180g Vinyl LP! Half-Speed Mastered by Miles Showell
at Abbey Road Studios!

Fire And Water was the third and most successful album by the revered English
rock band. It was their breakthrough album, sending them to number 2 in the UK
charts and number 17 in the US. “On this album,” notes bass player Andy Fraser,
“our confidence came from our total belief in each other. It was like a team of
commandos where you knew we were all watching each other’s back.”
Much of the album’s success was driven by the smash hit single All Right Now, an
unimpeachable classic which has become one of the songs that define what is
widely regarded as one the most creative eras in rock music.Boasting a fantastic
rhythm section (Fraser and drummer Simon Kirke), exquisite guitar work from the
late Paul Kossoff and soulful vocals by Paul Rodgers, Free are rightly
considered to be one of the greatest post-Beatles blues-rock bands, hard rock
pioneers alongside such outfits as Cream, Led Zeppelin and Derek and the
Dominos. This record represents perhaps their high water mark and is perfectly
suited to the half speed process. The original cut for this record was half
speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
This record was cut using a special technique known as half-speed mastering.
This artisan process results in cuts that have superior high frequency response
(treble) and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, a very high quality
master that helps to create a very high quality record.
